Announcing a blooming marvellous special menu!
Posted on May 7, 2014 by admin
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show has been a highlight of the London ‘season’ for over a century, and to celebrate its arrival this year we’ve devised a very special menu with a floral theme.
Available at dinner from Monday 19th May until Friday 23rd May inclusive at £45 for three courses, the aqua shard Chelsea Flower Show menu sees Anthony Garlando’s signature contemporary British cuisine enhanced by the use of edible flowers, wild herbs and foraged shoots.
Starters include Beetroot-cured Loch Duart salmon with aromatic tea jelly, trout roe and nasturtium flowers and aqua flower show salad featuring hop shoots, nettle purée, broad beans and violet flowers. For main courses there’s a choice of Scottish langoustines with primrose salad, Spring lamb saddle with wild garlic or a delicious vegetarian Asparagus custard with wild mint garnish.
The most-talked-about dish, we suspect, will be the stunning ‘Edible Garden’ dessert, consisting of grass crumbs, dehydrated strawberries, vanilla cream and crispy meringue, which is as delightful to look at as to eat. We’re sure that if we could enter it into the RHS Chelsea Flower Show it might even win a prize!
